High quality continuing education for independent insurance agents, brought to you via live streaming video.

What's the ABEN Difference?

The ABEN Difference

The Agents & Brokers Education Network (ABEN) is a joint project of state insurance and brokers associations who have a common goal: improving the quality and accessibility of distance learning opportunities available to their members.

Others' Technology

Webinar technology has, for some time, been a common offering of many participating ABEN associations. Combining powerpoint slides delivered via the internet with audio of the instructor, either by telephone or internet, the webinar format allows for the delivery of educational content in a convenient, but visually limited fashion.

ABEN's Technology

The ABEN network is founded on the use of streaming video content over the internet that provides the participant with live, full motion video of the presenter, high quality audio, along with coordinated powerpoint slides. The ABEN platform, provided by Business Professionals' Network and its technology partner, BizVision, also allows the end user to fully participate in the webcast by downloading written materials, emailing questions to presenters in real time, making notes in the viewer "notes" area, and emailing those notes to themselves for later use.

ABEN's Production Values

ABEN programming features enhanced production values and formats appropriate to the video medium. Presenters interact with each other as well as you, the ABEN participant. This delivers an educational experience that is engaging, interesting, as well as professionally rewarding.

It is this unique combination of valuable information delivered using interactive live, video and audio internet technology that define The ABEN Difference.
